Match Preview

  • Atalanta’s 4-1 loss at Napoli halted their streak of three consecutive victories in Serie A (SA), a run that saw Atalanta net 4+ goals each time. Nevertheless, they were trailing 4-0 at HT in Naples, in what was the first game across the last seven SA seasons to see them concede at least nine shots on target in the first half.
  • Expect action here as well, as Atalanta’s SA matches have seen an average of 5.75 goals this season, which is bettered only by Bayern (6.25) across Europe’s top five leagues! Additionally, there’s been at least three goals scored before HT in all four of Atalanta’s SA matches, with the winner on the day leading at HT by at least three goals on three occasions.
  • Each of Sampdoria’s four SA matches have produced over 2.5 goals (W2, L2), and they travel here with two consecutive wins. Quick starters, Sampdoria were leading at HT in their previous three outings, netting the opener from the 31st minute to HT in the last two. However, three of the previous four SA H2Hs have produced under 2.5 goals.
  • We should get a winner here either way though, as there’s been only one draw from the visitors’ previous 12 SA away matches (W5, D1, L6). Each of the five wins during that period saw both teams score, albeit Sampdoria conceded the opener three times. That said, they have opened the scoring in two of the previous three H2Hs held here, winning both (L1).
  • Players to watch: Sam Lammers (ATA) has scored in consecutive SA matches, netting beyond the hour mark both times. Meanwhile, Sampdoria’s Fabio Quagliarella has scored a first-half opener in three straight SA games (W2, L1).
  • Hot stat: Before the start of this round, home favourites had a win rate of 65.22% (W15, D1, L7) – significantly up on the 56.07% recorded last season.
